"it was very good"October 1, 2007
"Very easy and convenient service to use, would recommend and use again. Only comment I would make is that on our return journey when getting off the bus at our zone we did not know which direction to go in and walked right through R zone when we wanted X. A sign on the bus stop pointing towards the correct zone would save much time, especially when arriving back at midnight!"October 1, 2007
"very good indeed. Easy access to airport. easy return. plane was delayed by over 2 hours but this did not affect the charges. good value for money."October 1, 2007
"Car park was extremely convenient for the airport. Overall a very good experience and I would definitely use it again. Busses were frequent and although we missed the first bus when returning, another was only 10mins behind."October 1, 2007
"no problems at all. well sign posted, easy transfer to the airport and back again. would defo use again if flying from stanstead."October 1, 2007
"Directions, admission by card and parking areas fine. Bus service times were excellent. Passengers using the bus need to know which park they are in! Driver needed to be more vigilant when recommencing journey after stops. It does take some time if bus full to get at and remove self and luggage. I feel that this should be addressed before someone gets hurt, and/or sues."October 1, 2007
"Whilst the search I made when looking for parking brought up the Pink Elephant as the best value, my experience upon returning from my holiday was poor as I had to wait for 45 minutes for a return bus to my car. As it was raining hard I did not stop and complain at the office - I'd already been in the cold and rain for long enough, however you advertise a bus every 20 mins, which did not happen. Please note that there were two buses to both the red and blue car park whilst we waited, so for some reason the yellow car park was not catered for properly. My poor experience was on Friday 28th September at approximately 4pm."October 1, 2007
"Everything was great on the way to the airport - Bus was already there and we got on with no problems at all.
ON the way back we waited for 30 minutes for a bus to arrive to take us to the red area, There was well over 400 people waiting in the line to get on the bus.
There was many buses coming through the airport that were empty and this frustrated me as there were no demand for them.
I think a bit more organisation is in order.
"The machine at the entrance would not accept the credit card I used to make the booking. I had to press he button for assistance. I had to drive round twice to find the car park because there wre several buses parked, one of them being only about 5 yards from the entrance to the car park so I could not see it until I had driven past.
Arriving back at the car park, it was very dark and difficult to make out the numbers of the rows. It would be less confusing if the writing on the bus shelters in the blue zone was in blue rather than yellow. There is a circle which says "blue zone" but at 2am it is confusing."
"Very easy to use and quick to action. Smooth running from start to finish."October 1, 2007
"Not bad although it takes a long time to get back to the car."September 30, 2007
"1st time we have flown from stansted always gone from luton. We found the car parking excellent easy to get into and really well sign posted. we will almost certainly be using both the airport and parking with pink elephant again in the near future"September 30, 2007
"Excellent, no problems and staff very helpful"September 30, 2007
"Excellent very easy to book, very easy to park, and get away."September 30, 2007
"The car park is fine, but you wait to long for the bus"September 30, 2007
"does exactly as it says on the tin
buses regular if not a bit full on return
for the money very good"
"No problems start to finish . Well signposted , quick transfers , and very reasonable in price .
Thank you ."
"parking reservation worked well with the only exception that on inserting credit card on arrival, machine advised 'card not recognised (or similar), see cashier'. There was no cashier on duty. Another employee advised re-insert card other way round. It worked. It would be helpful if card reader machine advised of this possibility."September 30, 2007
"I now always use Pink Elephant when travelling from Stansted. The service is very efficient; the drivers are courteous; and I generally return to my car within 15/20 minutes of passing through immigration etc.
Thanks you for another smooth end to our journey back from holiday
My outward experience was very smooth and easy, I booked, I arrived and parked, caiught the bus immediately, had a delightful driver, disembarked. Job done. The return journey was a little less smooth. The bus took over 20 minutes to arrive and was horribly overcrowded. I had to stand and I struggled to keep my footing as I have an injured knee. However, I located my car easily and was away within minutes onto a well signed road."
"All very good apart from a very long wait for a bus to return us to the car park on the way home, waited at least 15 minutes, maybe more and there was a huge queue behind us after we left. In my experience with Pink Elephant this is not normal. Was charged an extra £8 for being 2 hours later than on email but the attendant kindly waived the charge."September 30, 2007
"car park was easy enough to find, didn't have to wait long for a bus - but at almost £60 for 8 days it's too expensive."September 30, 2007
"cheap, safe parking..no problems.
could do with clearer signs at the inward and outward barriers..a bit confusing . fortunatly there was a helpful lady in the booth who sorted us out.
prompt bus service with polite driver."
"very pleased with service,pink elephant was very quick,straightforward and easy to use. thankyou and would definately use again"September 29, 2007
"Easy to find, direction instructions very clear, plenty of parking space available, frequent buses to go to airport, very pleased with facility and would recommend and use again in the future. Many thanks."September 29, 2007
"Overall a good experience, very easy to use with quick and easy access into and out of the car park."September 29, 2007
"Good safe car parking, value for money, no problems, well organised."September 29, 2007
"we found this car park easy to get to from colchester.
buses were great to and from the airport.
our only complain is it is not made clearly that you dont put your car parking ticket in the meter if you book online , therefore we were charged £55.60 for parking.
we have been told we can be rembursed the difference.can you help with this concern.

"Infrequent bus service, poorly ventilated buses, inadequate signage on buses to showing different destinations within the parking area (and no announcement by driver of destination)"September 29, 2007
"I have used the Pink Elephant car parking in the past but had not booked on line and I was pleased with the saving made. However, when we came to leave the car park, the automatic ticket barrier would not accept my ticket and we had to queque, along with other people who had pre-booked, at a manned ticket barrier. I handed over the ticket and booking reference number (which, fortunately, I had the foresight to have taken with me) and the barrier was released manually.
I trust this problem is resolved before my next holiday."
